think the republicans will get obama to agree to some cuts, even if we don't have a really economically damaging showdown. chris: how are we going to deal to entitlements? i don't think liberals want to do much. who is going to do it? >> we don't have to do it immediately, and that's an important point. conservatives don't either. the conservative base right now is an older base. it's people in their 50's and 60's, people who say i'm really worried about the deficit. don't touch my medicare or social security. chris: that it? indicated stuff. >> the entitlement stuff is a really big problem. there are a lot of liberals who go too far in denying it's a problem, but it's not an immediate problem. interest rates remain low. we have a little bit of time. chris: now for some fun. we're all looking forward to witnessing the president's inauguration on monday, we thought we'd look back through history at some inauguration firsts. this inauguration will mark the 57th time a president has been sworn into office and like any national tradition, the ceremony has evolved. george washin

the right thing? >> i think so. there are three tools the republicans have to force obama to focus on spending, which she does not want to do it and will do unless forced. first is the sequester which starts march 1st or 2nd. that is a hundred billion dollars per year. that is the real cut in spending that will happen. the other one is the continuing resolution which starts march 4/7. we have a continuing resolution. they are the republicans that can put obama on a very short leash and only give him a continuing resolution for a week for two or three. cut the spending each time. those are two very powerful mechanisms. gerri: you don't in addition of the purse strings on the debt ceiling to use that at the a lever and give the president to stop spending? >> i didn't say that the man at the day. they just moved it back. gerri: what do you think? should they use the debt ceiling? >> ultimately, short. two tools that are very real and very powerful coming up. obama has tried to demonize the debt ceiling. okay. set it back with a condition. okay democrats in the senate. you have not passed

returning us to the division of power; obama in the white house, democrats in control of the senate, republicans of the house. but appearances can be deceiving and in this case are. the most important reality of the election is that the republican effort to oppose anything and everything proposed by obama almost like a parliamentary party was not rewarded. taking the debt ceiling hostage was not rewarded, calling the obama health care plan -- which was their own only a few years earlier -- socialism was not reward withed. rewarded. that means they have to begin to rethink themselves and, importantly, democrats will not automatically embrace the same tactics in opposition. so i think that was the important change that creates a new dynamic not that's going to solve our problems. there's going to be no sitting around the campfire in washington making nice to one another. but the possibility now exists for a real effort and a successful effort to deal with our most pressing problems. >> host: two familiar washington faces, thomas mann and norm ornstein.

obama than in 2004 as rich mentioned than 2008. this is not the post partisan barack obama, but one laying down a marker expanding -- explaning the vision for progressive government, not even a nod whatsoever todd fact that the american people elected republicans to control the people's house, the house of representatives, no nod to the fact there needs to be bipartisan at all whatsoever. that's concerned me the most, and, also, no discussion utah debt, no discussion whatsoever of the debt. that concerned me. gerri: to your point, big discussion of entitlements and what they mean not country. rich, what did you make of that? i want you to hear the sound first. here's the president on entitlements from the speech today. >> the commitments we make to each other through medicare and medicaid and social security, these things do not sap our nation. they strengthen us. [applause] they do not make us a nation of takers, but they free us to take the risks that make this country great.

house and senate republican and say i am very impressed with this earlier vision of barack obama. i think that he had it right. it's unpatriotic, it's immoral, it is wrong and therefore, i'm going to do my part and my role to make sure that we fix it. now, i would love to see every house republican go to the house right at the center of the capitol, in the rotunda, is a copy of the mag na carta, 1215, almost 800, 900 years ago, in 1215, the nobles said to the king, you cannot spend money that we don't approve raising and the king was in a weak position and said, yes. and all of the legislative branch rose out of that historic moment and the legislature has every right to say we're not going to pass and we're not going to give you the money and because of the situation they find themselves in, could have a devastating effect of april 1st not passing certain things. what if they decided, for example, not to fully fund the bureau of alcohol, tobacco and firearms and said, no, we're not going to fundamentally implement them, it would be illegal to try to implement it. and ronald reagan

illegally. that is highly controversial, not just for republicans. >> there is much to do for president obama. and the countdown is on. he has just four more years in was to seal his legacy. >> just about 700,000 people turned out to ring in obama's new term, way down compared to the 1.8 million to turn out four years ago. >> clearly the excitement does not compare to the first term. what about here in europe. we asked people and politicians what they hoped to see from obama part 2. >> it is great he was reelected. he had four years and he has four more. it is a big opportunity. i think obama can now push the things that he wants to. things that are important to him. >> the u.s. is important to the global economy, so it is crucial that it manages to overcome the debt crisis. the main issue he needs to address is the budget. he needs to to find a solution. otherwise the u.s. could soon end up like greece. >> if you look at how high emissions are you have to say that there needs to be changed. i hope obama has the courage in his second term to be more forceful in this area. >> i

. president obama got zero republican votes in the house for the stimulus. he got zero republican votes for health reform. over on the senate he got a record number of filibusters. senate republicans blocked practically everything that they could, using the filibuster at a level we have never before seen in our country's history. a strategy that was born that night, this night four years ago, was, in fact, implemented. what did republicans get for that strategy? they did manage to win back the house in 2010, plus a lot of state legislators and governorships. other than that, that's pretty much it. president obama won re-election in 2012. not only did democrats hold on to control of the senate, they actually increased their majority there, and despite retaining control of the house, americans did cast more votes for democratic members of the house than republicans. the republicans have since admitted, they've been bragging ever since, that they held on to the house in this past election even though they got fewer votes only thanks to jerrymandering the maps. that's what it's good f

/3 of people volunteered that the thing they wanted congressional republicans to do was compromise. it was the highest item on the obama list, i think was 11%. 34% said we want congressional republicans to compromise. >> i agree with what the republicans decided to do. you can call it kicking the can down the road for three more months. but i think it's great that they are actually challenging the democrats to do something they haven't done in 1,362 days. pass a budget, you know, the president has sent budgets to the united states senate that the democrats have controlled. and he's gotten zero votes every year. what's their vision? >> to the extent that the president is saying on gun control, we talked about this a minute ago, look, challenge republicans. let's change views about gun laws in this country. he's not challenging democrats. he's not saving democrats from themselves when it comes to medicare and saying, look, i know this is a tough vote, about you we've got to do something if i'm going to really put the budget on a different heading. >> there's no question he will have
